OK in chapter one the narrator says “Watch me do it first before you try to do it”. So they took the audio from a video and made it a “Great Course” . Really a failure Then on top of that the voice of Audible comes on in between chapters to warn you that this is not a substitute for real medical treatment and as he talks Siri goes off to ask me what to do… Where was the supervisor of the audio folks… This is the ultimate failure of all audiobooks… Audible, wake up then hang your head in shame.
